Kinect-a-Sketch Updates an Old Classic

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  March 21, 2012


What if you could play with your Etch-a-Sketch by simply moving your hands in the air? That would be pretty awesome. What once might have seemed like magic is now a reality. The Kinect-a-Sketch merges Etch-a-Sketch technology with gesture recognition.

This project comes from the folks over at Waterloo Labs. The system lets you control the Etch-a-Sketch by standing in front of the Kinect. You just use a huge pencil or your hand to control the Etch-a-Sketch and draw what you want.

The video explains it much better than I can. The main thing is that you can draw onto the Etch-a-Sketch by drawing in thin air! How long will it be until Microsoft teams up with the toy company and offers us a retail version? I would buy that in a heartbeat.
